The song itself is different from her previous efforts, many fans likening the song to earlier Perfume songs.

Opening with a rhyming sort-of rap, Kyary notes the song’s hip-hop influence and her goal to deliver purposeful pop with a larger message, evoking a similar feeling to singer’s previous singles “Fashion Monster” or “Mondai Girl” that boasted broadcasting her unique sense of self.

Additionally, the Harajuku singer is taking her first Halloween solo concert “THE SPOOKY OBAKEYASHIKI ~PUMPKINS STRIKE BACK~” to the world stage, making stops in the US, England, and Germany—tickets on sale today.
